Holmwood Collages: postcard size

Tese three small collages look like tile designs. The patterns were created from the wonderful Minton flooring in the house and the red, yellow and blue decorative wall coverings which are being carefully restored by the national Trust Scotland.

These three small collages have echoes of ceramic tile designs. The patterns were created from combining elements of the encaustic Minton floor tiles found on the floors of Holmwood villa and the red, yellow and blue decorative wall coverings designed by Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson. The interior walls are being carefully and sympathetically restored by the National Trust for Scotland. During earlier restoration of Holmwood, the original wall decoration was discovered beneath layers of paint and wallpaper.
